  1. Sad story.  I have an Avid Model A that was last flown in 2010.  Rotax 582 with about 350 hours.  A series of storage accidents has left the wings and struts in need of major repair or replacement.  Other needed repairs include new prop, windshield, and tail wheel spring.  I have no storage space or time to repair it. Hate to see it go through another winter outside.  Will accept any reasonable offer, and I can deliver it anywhere on the road system in Alaska.  Currently located in Fairbanks.  I can get you pictures and all log info if you're seriously interested.  Please call or text. 907 3tow too O3twoO.
  2. I have a Kitfox 1 Model B project that basically complete. 
    I have had all of the frame powder coated. Replaced all of the hardware. I started on the wings. One has a little hanger damage but all of the parts are there. 
    Comes with all parts for the wing repair, aircraft plywood to make the false ribs and trailing edge. New tires. New brake pads. Brs 1050 chute(needs repacked). Has a Rotax 532 with about 400 hours on it. I was planning to have it gone through and run it out for 200 more. There are 2 props, one good and one not. I have all of the windshield material to put new glass on. I have some covering but you will need to purchase more covering and the paint materials. All of the parts are there for the plane. 
    I have a trailer that goes with it.  
    I would like to $5500 but am open to offers. 

  3. This is an assemblage of parts I have collected in the process of rebuilding several Avids. The fuselage is a later model, as it has provisions for a nosewheel. I do not know the history, nor is there paperwork.
    The wings are speedwings, with heavy walled tubing. Everything needs a good cleaning and inspection, but there is enough there to assemble an airplane. One wingtip needs repair. I have the pieces, I just didn't do it as I was considering extending the wings. There will need to be some cutting and fitting done at the horiz stab, and a new set of "v" struts made. That's all the major stuff. There is an engine mount and a rudder. I have the controls. Matco wheels and brakes.
    It is on conventional gear.  I do not have the nose gear hardware. Everything firewall back, $2500. I have too many projects and not nearly enough time to finish them. Time to thin the herd. This is still available as of May 20. I already have two flying Avids, a third about 95% done, and a stretched fuselage heavy hauler waiting to be built. If somebody doesn't get this, my daughter will scrap it when she cleans out my estate.

  4. Folks, an acquaintance has a MkIV Speed Wing kit he bought new in 92.  The only thing that he did on it was paint the fuselage.  No engine but has the 3 blade wooden prop of the time..  Hit me up w/serious inquiry and I'll refer you.  He's not put it on the market yet but definitely wants to sell it.  Asking $6500  Located in Harrisonburg VA.
